The Carbon Crooks

The Carbon Crooks (FullĀ length documentary film below)

In December 2019, one of the crucial points in the negotiations at COP25 in Madrid, is the trading of carbon emissions. Can we simply buy a way out of our problems by counting carbon credits that only exist on paper.

When the EU started the Carbon Emissions Trading System (ETS) Denmark became the largest registry in the world. Why? Because hackers and VAT-fraudsters hijacked the system, and the – long gone failure with the UN Clean Development System (CDM) was no better. This film from 2013 tells the full story. A story, that the politicians six years later have not yet found any solution on.
